    Default My Discovery 4 build thread

    Finally getting around to taking some photos and sharing them on this forum.

    Had a new drawer system and fridge drop slide installed, itís pretty awesome!!









    Also upgraded my awning from a Hannibal awning to an Ostrich wing (270 degree awning)... I love the thing but a minor miscalculation - the rear door with the front runner ladder does open all the way. Oh well, nail in the coffin and buying the Alucab expedition tent and getting rid of the roof rack and ladder. Not a fan of the current roof top tent and Iím most certainly in favour of the 30sec tent









    For this wondering I decided to go Ďwhite-INí with BF Goodrich 265/65R18 KO2s



    Currently we are in Mozambique which is 1 of 3 countries that we are doing a quick 3 week Overland trip and today we found a nice spot with an epic view.

    Best and most overland used D4 i've seen! I'm looking for the AluCab 270 awning next and plan to finish my sleep platform and drawers when I get back to the mainland. I have an ARB tent and it's nice, but I think I'm going to stick with sleeping in the vehicle with all necessities in the drawers and camp gear on the roof. RTT is nice, but too much weight up there for my liking. However, the AluCab and James Baroud pop-up tents are the bee's knee's when it comes to comfort and ease of use just out of my current price range so I'll stick to the ARB RTT for now until the rest of the truck is completely converted.

    FYI, my lady's family is in from SA now here in Hawaii......they are loving the weather and keep barking at me about why I have not made the trip. Turns out her uncle just bought one of the last D90 green (sea foam color) off the production line to add to his D110 overlander. The D90 only has like 32km on it and it is a collector for him as the last year/model produced. He let his daughter use it for the wedding and then it went back into the garage. They live in Cape Town so the trip has to happen soon and I may never come back...hahahahaha

    Love seeing your adventures....

    Cheers Mate!

    Initially when I booked my car in for the carrier it was booked for a Front Runner Cartier but if I look through their history it doesnít resemble any of the carriers so I assume itís a custom one. Either way I love it

    Very cool! I see you on the Instagrams from time to time. Question for you: what is the blue square sticker with the yellow triangle on the front bumper?

    Follow you on Insta as well! Itís a sticker thatís required by Mozambique law to show from the front that you are towing a trailer and it shows on which side the steering wheel is but many stick it incorrectly. The trailer has same sticker at the back just in case the person canít figure out itís a trailer thatís being towed. Stupid but it is what it is
